Tuesday I left Nakuru by regretting the 1907 m of altitude for freshness during the night. After being entered the northern hemisphere I visited Lake Bogoria, here, and its pink multitude Flemish. Only one track led to the lake then skirts it on the western face, tracks stony in addition. I decided to go to bivouac in Robert's Camp (986 m) at the edge of Lake Baringo, here, last lake into Great Rift Valley before Lake Turkana, here, partly border with Ethiopia where I will not go.
Wednesday, April 17 I wished to go to Nanyuki directly by taking a track starting from Marigat which became increasingly narrow and finished in front of a river. I returned to Marigat to take the B4 road up to Nakuru then the B5 road up to Nyeri and finally the A2 road where I stopped before Nanyuki to bivouac at Bantu Mountain Lodge after 323 km.
Thursday, April 18 was a small morning to go to Nanyuki then Timau where I bivouacked in Kentrout for two days. On the way I took pictures of Mount Kenya, here, in the morning fog. On Friday, April 19 I lunched at the restaurant of Kentrout.

Saturday, April 20 I left the bivouac at the bottom of MT Kenya to 2283 m for Meru National Park, here, to 600 m of course the temperature had significantly gone up to 38°C in the cell; it decreased with 26°C only at 2:00 am! On the way I had stopped at the supermarket of Meru. I arrived around 10:30 at the entrance of park of Meru. The formalities of entry took much time so much the comprehension of the ranger was limited; there was no map to visit it if not to take a picture of the engraved on a stone but perfectly illegible on the camera. I left to seek the animals of which I found some species. At the end of the day I bivouac in public Bwatherongi campsite. I remained two days in the park.
Sunday, April 21 left as of 6:30 with a guide in search of predatory I discovered only herbivores and birds. We went up to Adamson's Falls to lunch frugally. The temperature had climbed up to 38°C. I returned to the camp-site at the beginning of afternoon to take a shower at the exterior temperature. Not what to refresh my harassed body. Around 18:00 the temperature having dropped I put at work on my computer.
